Bruny Surin, a four-time Canadian Olympian, made history by winning gold in the 4x100m relay at Atlanta 1996, ending the United States' supremacy in the discipline. His team set a national record of 37.49 seconds, which remained unsurpassed for two decades. Surin also won two world titles in the 4x100m relay in 1995 and 1997, as well as two silver medals at the World Indoor Championships in the 60m in 1993 and 1995. He tied the Canadian 100m record in 9.84 seconds, a performance that earned Donovan Bailey gold at Atlanta 1996. Bruny Surin is an honored member of the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame and Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.
Bruny lends his enthusiastic support to BeLab and the Be One connected armband, which he considers a sporting revolution. This collaboration took shape in Canada during the race organized by the Bruny Surin Foundation, where founder Jean-Philippe Garnier equipped runners with the Be One armband.
